Storyline

Adam is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he loved once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach... a girl named Eden. Their childhood flirtation becomes an impossible love. But when he catches a glimpse of grownup Eden on television, nothing will get in the way of getting her back... Not even the law or science!

Romantic and Refreshing
2 October 2012 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

The story is basically a new version of Romeo & Juliet. Since the movie has really stunning graphics and unique world setting, my eyes were enjoying catching every details scene by scene. Actors/actresses are good that they made the love story so sweet. I just think the story might has a better ending if more budget was allocated to the film making. I think it is a bit too short right now. When you are going to watch this film, I would advise you to keep your mind open to the story. Don't be too picky about the details of the two universes and their technology. Anyway, The story is so romantic and original, it is worth to watch in the cinema. I feel refreshing after watching the film.
